a small look 



at something big. 




i am here . . . 



Bright lights, brilliant leaves, 
busy streets, traffic jams, blue 
sky, crowded subways - the 
smell, the taste, the sound, the 
feeling of coming to college in 
Boston. 



Photographers, artists, college students, activists, doctors, 
historians, musicians, taxi drivers, venders, socialites, politi- 
cians, professors, construction workers, tourists, commuters, 
the homeless - thrown into this diverse mass, college students 
find that they're part of a new environment - a place that 
accepts all people and all cultures. A milieu that encourages 
growth of an individual ... to find out who she is; to find her 
voice; to leave her legacy.

where it all begins . . . 




She felt tiny and insignificant 
to the size and grandeur of the 
city and all its inhabitants. 

Ever heard the saying, "Today 
is the first day of the rest of 
your life?" That is how she felt 
that day, ready to find new 
people, new places and a new 
life. 






Be 

I :- >'|9 





She is a woman . . . your 
best friend and the girl you 
have never gotten to know. 
She lives on your floor and 
across campus. She is from 
the country, the city and the 
world abroad. She plays on 
the teams, hangs out at Java 
City and eats at Bartol. She 
is the girl you see in a towel 
in the hall and the one who 
flirts with the public safety 
officer. She is a Simmons 
woman. She is me, she is 
you . . . she is everyone. 






She goes out to explore . . . 
to begin her journey. Though 
her destination is unclear, she 
searches for something - for 
that one 

monumental experience 

to make her realize that this is 
home. 





11 



She finds solitude in her new 
environment. A movie at 
Quadside, procrastinating at 
Bartol, a heart to heart on the 
quad, late nights in the library, 
and listening to Magic 106.7 at 
the gym personalizes her little 
home in this expansive city. 
She is comforted. 





And just as life started to seem a little easier, classes begin. 
A whole new set of unanswered questions bombard her 
falsified feelings of security as she walks through the front 
door of the Main College Building. Which way is east? 
Where is the coffee? What does L stand for? What is MCB, 
oh yeah, riiggghht. Soon the questions are forgotten as she 
transforms into the student she is destined to be.

Nina L. Diggs 

Why shouldn't a parent be able to have conversations regarding their child without 
reservations? 

I am beyond proud of Nina and the goals she has set for herself and the steps she has taken to 

reach those goals 

I am beyond proud of Nina and the commitment she has maintained towards family 

I am beyond proud of Nina for the friendships she has developed along the way 

I am beyond proud of Nina and the young woman she has become 

I am beyond proud of Nina for her educational and professional achievements 

I am beyond proud of my daughter 

Truly nothing can describe what the heart feels when the word "love" simply isn't enough
